Lee Sin Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
updated!4/4/2011: Made a new build that seems to be quite legit! Check the second Lee sin build ask questions if needed.
READ EVERYTHING! YES ALL! Yes laugh at my build!! PLEASE! See this build took me some time sitting on the toilet and pondering. How can i make this guy good? Why do i see wriggles and trinity all the time!?!? SO MUCH FAIL! Well Let me intro you to my build where so far has not let me down to this MEDIOCRE champ. BUT PLEASE AGREE TO MY TERMS: Please have a brain =(
Look its early in the morning and i wanna bust this out so listen up and READ ON!
Runes pretty basic .. you can do w/e but KEEP those armor pen you need it. Remember caitlyn when she was gimped? But armor pen made her beautiful. Now since she got buffed.. its TOO easy to play her and beast. So i gave up playing her too easy. ANYWAYS
Red: Armor Pen.
Yellow: Health per lvl
Blue: ATK speed per lvl (helps with your synergy with skills passive)
Quins: I personally like Flat Energy! But you can go all Armor Pen.
So far so good. KEEP READING LAZY! I KNO YOU ARE JUST LOOKING AT THE ITEMS AND RUNES! KEEP READING DAMN IT! See i know cause thats what i do when i come to mobafail.
I REEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY don't care what you do here.. just make sure you get the armor pen and the 5% buff. (Its needed) that is all... KEEP READING. ITS A SMALL GUIDE! SMALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alright the eagle has landed! Lets get to the good stuff. THIS PART YOU WANNA READ!
Doran blade. You need AD .. BAAAAAAAAAAAAAD! But 1 doran blade is USELESS!! Read one!
Always request to go the lane with the 2 Golems and make sure the person in that lane can solo that lane. Start of game get your shield first then go to wolves. Now looks your skills are like a flow of a real martial artist. Remember "FLOW"
Shield > Flurry passive count in your head 1 and 2 > Iron will > 1 and 2
After Wolves head to Wraiths once there start the atk on the main wraith and ignite it. Do your shield/flurry you should hit lvl 2 get your tempest. Finish the rest of the wraiths but NOW you can use Tempest for SPELL VAMP so use like this..
Shield > Flurry 1 and 2 > Iron will > 1 and 2 > Tempest > 1 and 2 > Cripple > 1 and 2
Rinse and repeat
After wraiths head to the 2 golems. Beast them if you can. Its not hard.. but if you cant Head back to town and grab a potion.. maybe even after Wolves go get a potion if you arent CONFIDENT ENOUGH! REMEMBER YOU DONT WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND IN LVLS SO BE TIME EFFICIENT!
Anyways after golems you should go to lane .. ( Town if your not confident like a little girl) but go to lane and shield/iron will/ tempest to life steal minions BUT PLAY DEF AND SMART. All you really need to do is stay there for a few mins so you can have enough for another DORAN BLADE and BOOTS OF SPEED!
Once you have those two go back to wolves and rinse and repeat. Go back to your lane and ATTEMPTED A GANK!!! If you fail... you fail stay in the lane and work to get your THIRD doran blade.
BUT IF SUCCESS! THEN GO TO TOWN AND GET THAT THIRD DORAN BLADE!! Then start working on TONS of GANK GANK GANK!!!! Lee sin has HORRID GANK POTENTIAL!! Well yes and no.. other can do it better. But if you dont miss your Q and PLAY LIKE A SNEAKY ASSASSIN then you got this!
Once you can get your pick axe just keep ganking but by now you wanna turn your boots into
A. Ninja tabi
Depends on team on your boots. Anyways get your pick axe and turn that into a Last Whisper ASAP.. so that your skills do even more damage and your ulti can kill some one now YAY!
Ok next you wanna get a Giants belt asap. You wanna turn that into your Warmogs asap. But also remember..
GOLDEN RULE!! BUILD TO THE SITUATION! SITUATION DEPENDS ON THE ORDER OF YOUR BUILD!
After warmogs this decision is critical.. Sell a doran blade and start working on your
B. or b your Banshee Viel
C. if you guys are KICKING ***!!! GO GET THAT BLOOD THIRSTER GOING!
Look play smart.. dont be dumb and play with your head not your **** bro.
ATK SPEED BUILD:
ATK SPEED SUCKS!(Unless you are fighting a noob team. GO FOR IT!) Listen you.. with atk speed really its nice sure..but watch you really don't use it. Watch how much Damage you miss out on. Its just i have tried it all and its a no go. Your passive gives enough cause your going to be spamming skills in a real fight anyways.. and a 1v1 your a dualist so ... win? His play style has enough atk speed for what he needs to do.
There is one build that i did that was AMAZING!! OMFGWTFBBQ AMAZING! SOLO BARON BREEZE! cant remember it all but i kno it had 2 hextech gunblades and a ginsoo. Boots where zerkers and i had a trinity plus wriggles. Its amazing with the spell vamp on cripple and life steal. Buuuuuuuut good luck gettin that in a game really.
YOU WILL BE GREAT
UPDATE! 4/4/2011: New build seems to be efficient! Still testing and working the kinks out. Suggestions and positive feed back is well needed. Check the second build for this please.
YES YOU WANNA MAX OUT Q FIRST!!!! ITS YOUR Q YO!!! But you wanna start with shield first then tempest for that jungle. Then Q it up. The times where you cant get your Q get your W or E. In early to early mid you wanna make sure you have at least 2 in your shield/iron rest into tempest.
If your opponent is distance Q to close the gap 1 and 2 > tempest quickly cripple so no get away. 1>2 then Q it up again and ignite for the finish. Shouldnt take that long. If your 1v1 .. its too simple you dont need info for that .. Q>Q>Shield>1>2>Iron will>1/2>Tempest yada yada~
Shield: YOU ARE SUPPORT DPS!! Weird eh? That shield in team fights you better be spamming to help your team mates. HELP THEM SPAM IT. Use it in smart situations also though. Like.. a blitz pulls you in quickly zip back out before he gets his silence off. So many different ways to use it. Even use it to tower dive.
This beast man power of a round house kick is so useful!! If your going to die kick him away! If you are ganking push them to your team. OR SIMPLE USE IT HAS A FINISHER!!!! If your use this skill you here a pop when you hit a enemy into death. Its awsome
Summary just remember your skills are flow... FLOW!!!! Guys your skills are your important part of lee sin. Use them flowful.. practice makes perfect.
Exhaust: is good. But you have cripple really. But still useful to rape.
Ghost: love this for escapes, ganking, you kno the drill.
Ignite: Your going to need this a lot. Remember when Caitlyn came out? Ulti wasn't enough to kill? Your ulti is just about the same. So when they get low.. ignite and Ulti him. Try to aim them to the other team though. But yea he will be a death bomb. ^^
Cleanse: In all honesty it can be VERY VERY useful and get you out a **** situation.
Every other Spell .. is meh.
Smite: IF YOU REALLY SERIOUSLY GET THIS..... smite.. really??? REALLY?!?! WTF DO YOU NEED SMITE FOR? YOUR LEE SIN BRO!!
Ok no doubt you can use it to gank baron away .. or a buff from the other team. But really? If you don't need it and you can get something that can make you more efficient in team fights then you know what to do. Don't get smite
OK ALL in all. Look its simple play with your head and heart not your eyes. This build should put you up there. Sorry i didn't do too well on the Guide but its 6 am in the morning and i am completely dead. I just wanted to do a guide just to help ppl out there that are having trouble.
Take or leave the build i REALLY dont care i only did it like i said as a nice thing to do. Thanks in advance for up or down vote. Please comment.
NO TROLLS, NO MORONS, NO FLAMMING, ONLY GOOD SPEAK PLEASE. SUGGESTIVE OR ANY TYPE OF POSITIVE CRIT.
This build just rocks. Go 3 dorans blades at start for early game ganks!!
The New build score board!:
Ignore the last one at the bottom thats from the original build. But like i said this build is a working progress.. i felt a lot more helpful in team fights with this. But i will still keep testing this.
